ABOUT Program Impact
Startup Gippsland is a regional initiative that aims to ignite the region’s startup ecosystem.
Startup culture is quickly spreading all over the world. However, in Victoria this culture is centred around Melbourne. Recognising the significant business growth and job opportunities that this culture could bring to regional areas, LaunchVIC, the Victorian Government’s startup agency, has funded a select number of regional startup programs, including Startup Gippsland.
Startup Gippsland seeks to build a community of entrepreneurs, small businesses, new ideas and startups who all share a ‘can-do’ attitude. We do this through regular meetups, one-off masterclasses, mentoring and online resources. See what’s coming up on our news and events pages.
